Save The Gulf: Update
How do I even begin to describe yesterday's emotions as I watched the futile attempts to save the Gulf coast while Olivia's drawing fundraiser grows exponentially? Her story was picked up by the Huffington Post, The Guardian (UK), a Belgian newspaper, and will be printed today in AOL news. Meanwhile, her facebook fan page grows from 857 yesterday to 1,660 this morning. Requests for drawings keep flowing in. We are looking into producing an edition of prints-- much like Olivia's hero James Audubon. I am inspired by the amazing outpouring of love Olivia has received, and I keep quoting Willy Wonka, "So shines a good deed in a weary world."
